After a busy day of work, heading out to bar for a drink is the perfect way to unwind. Add music to the mix and you have an evening worth waiting for. Baltimore has many venues for live music, but what you want is something light, like a pianist. A number of Baltimore bars have regular piano nights. One bar even has dueling pianos.
